This year's Science Fair was a part of Family Math and Science Night on Thursday, February 1. Wyndcroft welcomed members of our community to an evening filled with educational fun. Twelve stations were set up around the Auditorium and Gymnasium, each with a different theme. Guests were invited to visit each station throughout the event. Thank you to Merck for the use of their Star Lab.
Take a look at all the fun here!
Wyndcroft seventh graders completed projects involving several months of hard work when they presented their Science Fair Projects to a panel of outside judges. The projects involved researching a topic in a depth in one of several categories, designing an experimental protocol to confirm or dismiss a hypothesis, executing the protocol and summarizing the total effort in a well-written research paper. The students then created a traditional "research poster" to summarize and display their results for a panel of scientific judges who were not Wyndcroft faculty and were not well-known to the students. The judges looked at four areas: scientific thought, experimental methods, analytical approach, and presentation.
Those students whose presentations and boards received special recognition were:
- 1st Place – Colin Brown
- 2nd Place – Meena Ali
- 3rd Place – Eesha Ampani
- 1st Place – Maddie Rohlfing
- 2nd Place – Romil Shah
- 3rd Place – Morgan Naivar
- Honorable Mention – Jheanelle Robinson
- 1st Place - Nicholas Valoret
- 2nd Place – Juliana Zweifel
- 3rd Place – Reagan Basile
